TONY backlash

Well now we know why the great Jonathan Pryce bothered to be the replacement-star in Dirty Rotten Scoundrels: he was promised a Tony! Of course, the Tonys decided to dump that new pseudo-category at the last minute. And now Pryce is calling "shenanigans" on them.

Boo-hoo, I know. Here are all these worthy artists off-Broadway not being recognized the first time around, but a mega-successful stage actor like Pryce gets the ink.... Still, another window onto the haphazardness going on in TonyLand.

There's an interesting article in the (UK) Observer today, discussing the Tony nominations, the Royal Court, & Kevin Spacey: "Why Do Brits Rule On Broadway?",,1779485,00.html
